I don't know why everyone is knocking almari's eqpt list. Have you seen his photos? He gets the job done. I would hire him.

Not sure why all this equipment is useful, I realized that we, photographers, want the perfect shot with the perfect equipment each time, to make the most artistic shots possible. But for the B&G, the most important is to take the right picture at the right moment. Now I shoot with the less possible and care less about all flashes and whistles.

Of course I take artistic shots when I can, but I prefer to be always ready to shoot without changing/adjusting my equipment all the time. So 2 bodies, 4-5 lenses and 2-3 flashes is all I need.
I can provide top quality results anyway and be less intimidating/visibile.

It depends of your style of pictures I guess.
